A2: Racial Bias

The Detroit Free Press publishes a commentary by Leon Drolet, chair of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, criticizing the recent field trip for black students at Dicken Elementary in Ann Arbor. He writes: “When it comes to matters of race, Ann Arbor Schools can’t seem to get it right. What’s so difficult to grasp about treating each child as a valuable individual human being instead of as a racial category? We owe each child that basic right – and the law requires it.” [Source]
